Many Thanks

I finally dug up and used actual rubber stamps. I love digital stamps but sometimes you just need to get inky.
Of course I went to my brand new, go-to paper, Love Nest from My Mind's Eye.
This is a thank you card for a friend. It looks a lot nicer in real life. You may need to click on the picture to enlarge it to see the paper piercing.
This card is also entered in these challenges.

Thank you for the comment on my blog. The stamp is from a Hampton Arts set called Penguins. Obviously I used the adorable polar bear that was on it and not the penguins. LOL

Your blog is awesome!

Hi Cheryl.... Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. Wanted to leave one for you too.... I love your background... Snowmen are my favorite things during this time of year. I can't take credit for my blog design. A wonderful gal named Veronica did it all for me. She even made biz card for me that match. :)
